OWH Mid-Week Throw Down - Multiples

This week's challenge is to Multiply the Fun.  With the winter holidays rapidly approaching, the OWH deadlines come even faster.  The deadline for multiple holiday cards if OCTOBER 15!!!!!!  Really?!?!  I think I blinked!!!

I will not have a full box to send before the multiples deadline, so I thought I would concentrate on winter thank you cards.  I am sure that many units receive holiday packages, and will want to thank those who sent the packages. 

Here are my cut papers:

And here is one of my finished cards:
Not one of my favorite cards, despite being made from my favorite papers.  Just feel like it is missing something.  Feel free to make suggestions!!  The white strip is pearl paper embossed with the Sizzix Snowflakes texture plate.  Patterned papers are from the DCWV Winter Stack.  The blue circle paper is glittered and embossed (it does pass the sweater test - I checked!).  The card base is blue on one side, white on the inside, with a subtle herringbone pattern.  OWH Sketch #93.  Fiskars sentiment. 


  1. I don't know why you don't care for this card. I think it is very, very nice. Simple and to the point. it would be good for either gender which makes it twice as nice. Have a great day.

  2. Bobbi, thanks for playing along with the Midweek Throwdown Challenge. I like your card and it's certainly easy to make multiples of this one. I'm wondering if what's bothering you might be the background layer on the sentiment. It might "pop" more if the layer were one of the shades of blue rather than the sand color, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with this card!

  3. I agree that it is a very nice gender neutral card. My suggestion might be to move the sentiment up a bit - for me, the circle pattern paper seems to be competing a little too much with the sentiment for status as focal point. Or possibly add a few spots of pearl pen or 3 little brads to the sentiment panel to emphasize it a bit more. I think I have this same paper - hmmmm - a case perhaps???

  4. Hi Bobbi! I really like your card as is: it has pattern, color and texture but a CAS feel! I do like Joan's suggestion to add 3 little pearls or Pearl Pen (perhaps in blue) to the corner of the sentiment, but again, I love your card!

  5. Terrific job on this Bobbi! I like the papers and the layout you've used.

  6. I love the Thankful stamp. I'm having a hard time finding one that is the right cross between flowery/scroll-y and legible!
